"Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies," from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, played using only water glasses.

well done. And quite ethereal.


this is so beautiful and worth listening to even if you think you’ve heard this song a thousand times—ESPECIALLY if you think you’ve heard it a thousand times.

This gave me goosebumps of the good kind




can we please take a moment to just appreciate this anime that just came out???

it’s about four middle school girls who are members of the “hero” club - they go around and help people wherever help is needed. in the first episode you find out that they were actually all selected because of the high aptitude they show, and they are needed to help fight off bad guys to save their world. oh my!

yes. it’s a magical girl anime.
yes. it’s a magical girl anime with a girl in a wheelchair.
yes. it’s a magical girl anime with a girl in a wheelchair WHO TRANSFORMS and DOES NOT MAGICALLY GAIN THE USE OF HER LEGS and STILL COMPLETELY KICKS ASS.
the second episode is devoted pretty much entirely to her character overcoming the mental block of her perceived “inability to fight” because of her disability. and it’s great. she kicks so much butt.

the first episode has repeated instances of world-wide (for the girls their world is mostly school-related, but still) accessibility. 

it’s not a perfect (i kind of wtf’ed at her transformation sequence tbh), but it looks promising so far as that sort of thing goes.

anyway. it’s call yuki yuna wa yusha de aru, or yuki yuna is a hero. look it up, if you’re into magical girl shows.

working on gifing some stuff, too~

/prays for lack of gross fan service, adds to my watch list/
